Radiolytic Synthesis of Polyaniline Nanofibers: A New Templateless Pathway
Polyaniline is an electrically conductive polymer which is relatively easy to process and has simple, reversible acid/ base doping/de-doping chemistry. It is a promising candidate for the development of electronic devices, especially sensors. 1-10 Heightened interest in one-dimensional electrical conductors and the need to produce nanoscale electrical connections has caused recent research to focus on polyaniline nanofibers.11-17 the high surface areas of these fibers make them more responsive than bulk polyaniline to gases,18-20 an extremely desirable property for sensing applications.
